The year has started out with a bang! We scrambled to provide help for the thousands of families affected by the partial government shutdown. We hosted our Annual Meeting, celebrated the graduation of Class 177 of Cincinnati COOKS!, welcomed Class 5 of LIFT the Tristate, opened a new clinic pantry at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and represented Cincinnati at the National Taste of the NFL
Congratulations Class 177 of Cincinnati COOKS!
Welcome to Class #5 of LIFT the TriState.
Children’s Hospital Clinic Pantry
We opened our second clinic pantry in collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Pediatric Primary Care Center in Avondale. The first one was started in July 2017 at the Hopple Street Neighborhood Health Center. Both pantries are made possible through the Bob Edwards Feed A Child Fund. Many young patients and their families face food insecurity and our pantries will offer doctors and their staff an opportunity to provide them with wholesome food options.
County-wide Food Drive for the Feds
Hamilton County Commissioner Denise Driehaus kicked off a county-wide food drive at a press conference held at the Freestore Foodbank’s Liberty Street Market with the goal to raise food to meet the higher-than- usual demand expected over the next month as we experience the residual effects of the recent government shutdown.
2019 Annual Meeting
We were happy to hold our Distinguished Speaker Series and Annual Meeting on Thursday Jan 24, 2019. It was an honor to have the CEO of Feeding America Claire Babineaux-Fontenot as our guest speaker. Thanks DBL Law for sponsoring the event.
Taste of the NFL
Proud to represent Cincinnati at the Taste of NFL Party with a Purpose in Atlanta. We thank all the restaurants that participated in the Kick Hunger Challenge and we congratulate Jag’s Steak and Seafood and Chef Michelle for their wonderful support!
